Discover a way to implement SAP’s Catalog Content Management functionality to help streamline your procurement process, boost productivity, and improve the accuracy of your purchasing records.
A procurement catalog simplifies the searching and selection of items to be purchased with its similarity to online shopping in SAP ERP Central Component (SAP ECC). Selected items can then be added to the shopping cart which brings them to the SAP purchase requisition or purchase order. The materials management (MM) module is part of SAP ERP ECC 5.0 and 6.0 software packages. SAP practitioners with knowledge of the MM and Purchasing submodules and the e-Procurement process in diverse industries can use this and SAP Catalog Content Management (SAP CCM) to streamline the process for requisitions or purchase orders.
If your company, client, or users find the line-by-line item search and entry in SAP’s requisition and purchase order transactions to be too time consuming, procurement catalogs might be a solution worth considering. SAP’s Catalog Content Management (SAP CCM) functionality allows the use of standardized procurement catalogs to support purchasing. The selection of items resembles online shopping rather than a more arduous line-by-line entry process. You can select multiple items in a similar category simultaneously and click the “add to the shopping cart” button to bring them into SAP ERP Central Component (SAP ECC) purchasing transactions.
